### Directions for questions: Based on the series of numbers given in the question, find the next / missing number in the series. 500, 379, 548, 323, ?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 1

Pattern is  (- 112 ;  + 132; - 152 ;  + 17and so on).
Hence next term will be (323 + 172) = 612.

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 2

### A sum of money is divided among A, B and C in the ratio 2 : 3 : 4. C gives Rs. 20 to B and B gives half of what he has now to A. Now, A and C have equal amount. What is the sum of money divided among the three?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 2

Suppose the shares of A, B and C are Rs. 2x, Rs. 3x and Rs. 4x, respectively.
When C gives Rs. 20 to B:
Amount with C = Rs. (4x - 20) and amount with B = (Rs. 3x + 20)
Now, B gives half of his amount to A.
Amount with A = Rs.

According to the question,

Or 4x + 3x + 20 = 8x - 40 or x = 60
Hence, total sum of money = Rs. (2x + 3x + 4x)
= Rs. 9x = Rs. (9 × 60) = Rs. 540

### The given rectangle ABCD has length 9 and width 5. Diagonal AC is divided into 5 equal parts at W, X, Y and Z. Find the area of the shaded region.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 3

Triangle ABC has area
Triangles ABW, WBX, XBY, YBZ and ZBC have equal bases and altitudes, so the area of each of these small triangles is 1/5
Similarly, triangles ADW, WDX, XDY, YDZ and ZDC each have area 9/2.
Thus, the shaded region has area

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 4

How many positive integer pairs (a, b) satisfy the equation ab = a + b + 20?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 4

ab = a + b + 20
ab - a = b - 1 + 21
a(b - 1) - (b - 1) = 21
(a - 1)(b - 1) = 21
= 1 × 21, 3 × 7, 7 × 3, 21 × 1
∴ a = 2, b = 22
a = 4, b = 8
a = 8, b = 4
a = 22, b = 2
The total number of pairs is 4.

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 5

Find the value of x + y, if both x and y are real and x2 + y2 + 2x - 10y = -26.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 5

x2 + y2 + 2x - 10y + 26 = 0
⇒ (x + 1)2 + (y - 5)2 = 0
Since x and y are both real, we get
(x + 1)2 = 0
⇒ x = -1 and (y - 5)2 = 0
⇒ y = 5
∴ x + y = 4

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 6

So Option D is correct

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 9

Directions to Solve: In each of the questions below consists of a question and two statements numbered I and II given below it. You have to decide whether the data provided in the statements are sufficient to answer the question. Read both the statements and

- (A) If the data in statement I alone are sufficient to answer the question, while the data in statement II alone are not sufficient to answer the question

Question: On a T.V. channel, four serials A, B, C, and D were screened, one on eacn days, on four consecutive days but not necessarily in that order. On which day was serial C screened?
Statements:
I. The first serial was screened on 23rd, Tuesday and was followed by serial D.
II. Serial A was not screened on 25th and one serial was screened between serials A and B.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 9

From I, we know that the serials were screened on 23rd, 24th, 25th and 26th.

Clearly, D was screened second i.e. on 24th, Wednesday.

From II, we know that one serial was screened between A and B.

So, A and B were screened first and third, i.e. on 23rd and 25th. But, A was not screened on 25th.

So, A was screened on 23rd and B on 25th. Thus, C was screened on 26th, Friday.

So Option C is correct

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 10

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 10

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 11

Directions: This question given below is followed by two arguments numbered I and II. You have to decide which of the following arguments is a ‘strong’ argument and which is a ‘weak’ argument.
Statement:
Should the Government introduce Gross Happiness Index on the lines of that introduced in Bhutan?
Arguments:
I. Yes. It will greatly help India in becoming a prosperous nation.
II. No. Bhutan has not gone anywhere even after introducing GHI over four decades ago.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 11

Just introducing Gross Happiness Index (GHI) is highly unlikely to greatly help India in becoming a prosperous nation. Thus, I is a weak argument. II is vague and unclear on the point of GHI. Thus, even II is a weak argument.

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 12

Point A is 20 m to the east of point B. Point B is 5 m to the north of point C. Point D is 10 m to the east of point B. Point E is 5 m to the south of point A. Point F is 10 m to the west of point E.

(ii) If both the first and the last letters are vowels, then both are to be coded by &.
(iii) If the first letter is a vowel and the last letter is a consonant, then their codes are to be interchanged.

PTUWT

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 13

Both first and last letters are consonants, so it should follow condition (i).
The code of PTUWT is 46\$76.

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 14

Five sentences have been given below. These have been taken from a paragraph and are not in their proper order. You are required to read these before rearranging them into a proper sequence that forms a coherent paragraph.
A Such eco-friendly behaviours include turning off ACs, heaters and lights when not in use, as this, for instance, can conserve up to 282 kilowatts of electricity per day.
B However, the positive impact that individual and community behaviours can have on climate action has remained under realised.
C Avoiding food wastage can reduce an individual’s carbon footprint by 370 kg per year.
D According to the United Nation Environment Programme (UNEP), if one billion people out of the global population of close to eight billion adopt eco-friendly behaviours in their daily lives, global carbon emissions could drop by approximately 20 per cent.
E Over the last two decades, many countries have attempted policies and actions to address climate change.

Q. The sentence that comes between the third and the fifth sentences after rearrangement is?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 14

The given sentences talk about the climate change and what all is being undertaken or planned by countries and people across the world to address the issue.
If we need a good introduction for the above paragraph, we can find the same in the last sentence i.e.; E. All the other sentences keep explaining what is being done by whom but only E explains what is going to be discussed in the paragraph further.
We can find that there is a close link between D and A as D talks about an report that mentions small habits can bring a change and A furthers the same by numbering those habits. C follows A as we can see it continues the discussion in A. So, DAC can be fixed together.
The only sentence that is left, B will best fit before D as; B initiates the idea that positive steps by humans are underrated. So, the sequence that can be formed is; EBDAC.
Thus, the correct answer is option (a).

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 15

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 16
• The error lies in the third part of the sentence.
• In the third part of the sentence, the word "burden" is incorrect in the context of the sentence. Hence, it should be replaced with "burdening".
• The correct sentence is:
• For three decades, India's self-branding as the world’s fastest-growing free-market democracy worked, with world leaders queuing up to visit New Delhi and burden a generation of diplomatic protocol officers.
SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 17

Directions: Find out the most effective word from the given options to fill the blanks of the following questions.

1. Boris Johnson was one among the many world leaders who were _______ by the COVID virus.
2. In Africa, it was very hard for the natives to be ________ by any disease since they were immune to most of them.
Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 17

The word 'afflicted' refers to a problem or an illness that causes pain or a problem, this could be an actual disease that causes physical illness in the body or a non-medical difficulty in life.
The reader can also look at the grammatical formation of the sentences, in this case, the tenses of the sentence, both sentences require the verb to be in the past tense, and thus options 1, 4, and 5 are automatically eliminated.
The blanks also require a verb and option 2 is an adjective and thus not an option.
Hence, the sentence can be rewritten as,
Boris Johnson was one of the many world leaders who were afflicted by the COVID virus.
In Africa, it was very hard for the natives to be afflicted by any disease since they were immune to most of them. ​

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 18

Read the following passage carefully and answer the following questions. Some of the words have been highlighted in the passage that will help you locate them to find the appropriate answer according to the questions asked.
Undoubtedly, trafficking is a pernicious offence, one that societies and governments must have zero tolerance for, and yet, handling the offence of trafficking needs precision, not a sledgehammer. In its current form, the draft Trafficking in Persons (Prevention, Care and Rehabilitation) Bill, 2021 seems to be lacking in nuance, even if well intentioned, to stamp out exploitative trafficking. The Bill, which will shortly be introduced in Parliament, aims at preventing and countering trafficking in persons, particularly women and children, to provide for care, protection and rehabilitation to the victims, while respecting their rights, and creating a supportive legal, economic and social environment for them. This is the Bill’s second iteration; the first was passed in the Lok Sabha, in 2018, but then meandered into nothingness as it was never introduced in the Upper House. Notably, the Bill has expanded the area under coverage to include offences taking place, not only within India but also outside it. It envisages the setting up of anti-trafficking committees at the State and national levels to implement the provisions, when passed. In the days the Bill was up in the public domain for comments, civil society activists and legal experts have criticised its various provisions, and submitted that an overzealous approach would blur the nuances and an understanding of the contributing factors, including vicious poverty, debt, lack of opportunity, and development schemes missing their mark.
Vociferous opposition has arisen over the key aspect of handing over investigation in trafficking crimes to the NIA both by those who believe that it would burden the already stretched unit further, and those arguing that this move would be an attack on federalism, by removing local enforcement agencies out of the picture. Another key criticism of the Bill has been its broad definitions of victims, smacking of refusal to consider consensual sexual activity for commerce. This would only land up criminalising sex work and victimisation of the exploited. Bringing pornography into the definition of sexual exploitation would not allow even for any adult consumption of non­exploitative, consensual material. Reporting of offences has been made mandatory with penalties for nonreporting, but those with an understanding of the tortuous processes, point to the fact that victims often do not ________. The mention of the death penalty for various forms of aggravated trafficking offences needs to be flagged too. The Government would do well to scan and incorporate the responses to its Bill in order to ensure that the fence does not eat the crop. While sexual exploitation and trafficking can be ghastly crimes invoking public horror, for the state to not employ a wholesome approach, cognisant of the causative factors, one that would be sensitive and precise, would be equally horrific.

Q. Find the option which can fill the blank given in the passage appropriately.

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 18

By reading the previous part of the sentence, we can know that the process of penalties for trafficking is very hectic but it also affects victims, they are frightened to record the complaint. So, the correct answer is option B.

SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 19

In the following question, a passage is given with six words given as bold and labelled as A, B, C, D, E and F. You have to choose the word from the given options which grammatically and contextually replaces the bold part.
China is expanding its nuclear force much fast(A) than US officials predicted just a year ago, highlighting a broad and decelerating (B) buildup of military muscle designed to enable Beijing to match or surpass US global power by mid-century, according to a Pentagon report released Wednesday.
The number of Chinese nuclear warheads could increase to 700 within six years, the report said, and may top 1,000 by 2030. The report did not say how many weapons China has today, but a year ago the Pentagon said the number was in the “low 200s” and was likelihood (C) to double by the end of this decade.
The United States, by comparison, has 3,750 nuclear weapons and has no plans to increase. As recently as 2003 the US total was about 10,000. The Biden administration is undertaking (D) a comprehensive review of its nuclear policy and has not said how that might be influenced by its China concerns.
The report does not suggest open amicable(E) with China but it fits an emerging U.S. narrative of a People’s Liberation Army, as China calls its military, intent on challenging the United States in all domains of warfare — air, land, sea, space and cyberspace. Against that backdrop, U.S. defense officials have said they are increasingly weary (F) of China’s intentions with regard to the status of Taiwan.

Q. (C). ?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 19

Here, the word ‘likely’ will be used in place of ‘likelihood’. The latter is a noun and a noun cannot fit here.
Therefore, the correct answer is option D.

F) Meanwhile, the North Central Railway Employees Union has expressed strong displeasure over this.

Q. After rearrangement, which among the following will be the first statement?

Detailed Solution for SSC CGL (Tier II) Practice Test - 22 - Question 20

After statement (D), statement (B) will come; it further adds the detail and cost of the flag to be deducted from the salary of Railway employees.
After statement (B), statement (C) will come, we get the hint from 'however', which shows opposition from the railway employees.
After statement (C), statement (A) will come; it further explains that the flags will be provided by a private company.
After statement (A), statement (E) will come; it shows that employees need not to pay cash for the flags, money will be deducted from their salaries.
Now, after explaining the whole incident, statement (F) concludes the passage. So, this is the concluding statement.
The final sequence is– DBCAEF
First statement is D, hence option D is the correct answer.
